Abstract

The archaeology of Ghana north of 10 degrees remains little known, thus between 2004 and 2009 archaeological research was completed in the Tong Hills, the home of the Talensi ethno-linguistic group. An overview of the research is presented here with especial emphasis placed on the ceramic traditions and chronology. These are contextualised within the archaeology of the wider region of northern Ghana.
